Student says private bus conductor 'molested' her

A 23-year-old woman has approached the Upparpet police alleging that her modesty was outraged by a conductor of a private bus she was travelling by.

According to the police, on January 2, the victim, a student of a private college in the City, was returning in a bus belonging to SRS Travels, from Goa. While she was sleeping, the conductor touched her legs and cheeks. She woke up and found the conductor standing next to her.

The victim took the conductor to the task and demanded the driver to stop the bus.

The driver ignored her and continued to drive. The passengers pacified the victim and asked her to lodge a complaint with the police. As soon as the bus reached Upparpet, the victim lodged a complaint with the police.

A senior police officer said, “The incident took place when the bus was reaching Bengaluru. The SRS Travels have provided the details of the conductor and the driver, who are currently absconding. The accused will be traced at the earliest.”

A case has been registered and the investigation is on.
